    I know they aren't Canted ., But I love the look of quads on my dad's 55 chevy..
    Wish I could find it or a cheap 55 chevy 2dr hardtop to clone like it.

    Squablow. Those Chrysler rims worked great on my Merc. Built this for myself in 1981. Sold it in 1988 to a party in the Milwaukee area to get a down payment for my shop. Last time I saw it was in 1991. Anybody seen it since ???

    Funny how when Rolls Royce and Jensen did it in the 60's, they managed to make it look peculiar.

    Not really cantered but still quad headlights. My plan was to angle them
    with a complete custom front end but I sold the car to buy my current
    Falcon. It's a '62 Humber Supersnipe.

  29. About twenty years ago, i helped a friend of mine pull a 37 ford coupe home. He bought it from a guy that owned an excavation company. It had canted caddy dual headlights leaded in, as well as some junk taillight configuration. It wasn't until recently that i saw the car again, that i realized what a treasure trove it was. 57 olds rear end, bare block in the trunk, homemade front spring shackles, some other custom touches. He's getting back to this car now because the kids are all grown & out of the house. Ill try to get some pics for all to see
